Bonnet bushing different sizes?

1010 Views 18 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  BeachRunner110
I noticed that my bonnet bushing was broken so I replaced it with a spare I have on hand. I hear a nasty vibration coming from my hood and to deduced it was a loose bonnet bushing as it is wiggling in the bulkhead bushing holder. I checked its size and the diameter is smaller than the broken one it replaced and smaller than the opposite side. Are there multiple sizes/diameters of these bushes? I ordered #346849. All my spares are very loose in my 1991 110...

I've had no luck finding good replacements either. The original ones (that were cracked when I got the truck), were the only ones I've received that had a wide enough slot. Every other pair since I've had to widen the slot in the bushing by a couple millimetres. Every other set has also cracked... well except the ones I put in a week ago...
Are you buying genuine ones?
I am assuming not... I did try once but didn't get a bush any different to those before unfortunately.
When you start snooping around on the web though, things appear very inconsistent. Which one of these are Genuine?


(Apparently left and right, according to descriptions, but the ones in the middle labelled as Britpart, appear to be the only ones that would fit without modifying the slot...)
